It took me years and uncountable amount of pineapple tarts tasting sessions to shortlist the 5 pineapple tarts as below.
I’ve spent considerably a huge amount of time and money buying from almost every friend, friends’ aunties, friends’ mothers and friend’s friends who understandably, claim theirs to be the best.
Now, taste is subjective and like everyone else, I will have my favourites.
You will find below the pineapple tarts that I personally enjoy and would confidently recommend to anyone. However, do read my descriptions in detail so you are aware of the differences for each.
Depending on your preference (taste is subjective after all), you should be able to select one that suits you best.
Still in doubt?
Send us a Whatsapp or PM us on fb.com/withhearts.hands with your queries and we will advise accordingly.
These melt-in-the-mouth pineapple rolls are made small so that you can pop the whole thing into your mouth and savour fine, buttery goodness together with the fruity pineapple filling!
TO ORDER: Whatsapp +6011 – 3938 5350 or PM FB.com/withhearts.hands.
My first 3 choices are Aunty Anna, Aunty Vee and Aunty Lim.
I’ll begin with Aunty Anna’s and Aunty Vee’s tarts since both are 80% similar.
The differences between both are minor, but enough to make you prefer one over the other so please read my descriptions below and send me a PM/Whatsapp if you are still unsure.
1. Aunty Vee Pineapple Tarts
Description: MORE jam to crust ratio.
Jam: Smooth jam that is slightly tangy and sweet.
Crust: Buttery, melt-in-the-mouth crust, but when compared to Aunty Anna’s, Aunty Vee’s crust are “less melty“, that’s to say – the crust is “firm yet tender, will melt-in-the-mouth but not powderly crumbly”.
Amount: 35 tarts/tub.
2. Aunty Anna Pineapple Tarts
Description: Balanced crust to jam ratio with fragile crust.
Jam: Tangy jam with a bit of fibre.
Crust: Buttery, delicate, melt-in-the-mouth crust.
Amount: 28 – 30 tarts/tub.
3. Aunty Lily’s Pineapple Tarts
DESCRIPTION: Soft, buttery crust with a bit of crunch plus tangy, low sugar pineapple jam.
These tarts does not possess the buttery aroma as much as Anna’s or Vee’s and likewise less melt-in-the-mouth texture too.
However, it is a decent choice for the price. It is great as gifts as it comes in a nice box.
I sold over a 100 boxes in 2015 and 90% was corporate orders.
Amount: 30 pcs/pack.
4. Aunty J’s Pineapple Tarts
DESCRIPTION: These mini balls has a superb melt-in-the-mouth milky crust with zesty pineapple filling. Suitable for those who prefers stronger tang and fibrous pineapple jam filling.
I repeat – milky crust, not buttery.
5. Aunty Lim Melaka open face pineapple tart
For those who have a penchant for crunchy crust (not melt-in-the-mouth) that is the hallmark of Melaka open face tarts, this tart beats the famous Bee Bee’s and most of the commercially available Melaka pineapple tarts.
Jam: Wonderfully fruity, fibrous and mildly sweet.
Crust: Crunchy (not melt in the mouth) crust which gives a nice bite but not unpleasantly hard.
Amount: 20 pcs
I’ve done my homework here –> http://www.rebeccasaw.com/pineapple-tarts-in-melaka/ so you can read the post to see my comparison chart.
And here is my review of Bee Bee’s tarts in 2013 and 2015. The standard has dropped drastically since.
Anyhow, I’m open to recommendations so please send your suggestions my way. I visit Melaka every 2-3 weeks to keep myself updated and I would appreciate any insider tips.
